Thai Yoga Massage: Tapas

  • Lakeview Yoga 4000 Washington Rd, Suite 103 Canonsburg, PA, 15317 United States (map)

Join us for a unique opportunity to sample a delicious variety of Thai Yoga Massage techniques that have been savored for centuries and lovingly passed down through the Nuad Bo Rarn (sacred massage) tradition of Northern Thailand. This spicy combination of supine, prone, side-lying and sitting techniques will help you cultivate a taste and/or talent for Thai Yoga Massage. But be warned – you will walk away hungry for more. Appropriate for ALL LEVELS

What is Thai Yoga Massage?

Thai Yoga massage is an ancient healing art with origins in Ayurvedic Medicine, Yoga and Buddhism. It has evolved into a unique and magical combination of deep stretching, rhythmic compression, soft-tissue manipulation, gentle rocking, energy balancing, and acupressure. A traditional Thai Yoga massage session is conducted on a thick pad on the floor, and the client remains fully clothed. It is often referred to as “lazy man’s yoga” because it offers the same benefits as a yoga practice, but requires little or no effort from the clients.

APPROPRIATE FOR ALL LEVELS! This course is for anyone who wants to come and play. Advanced practitioners will learn techniques that they can easily integrate into their current massage practice, and beginners will walk away with skills that will make them very popular with friends and family who suffer from typical complaints like neck pain, back pain and sore feet. Everyone will walk away feeling more relaxed, embodied and inspired by the simplicity, portability and possibility of this work.

Come alone or bring a partner! This will be remembered as the best gift you gave this year -whether you give it to yourself, or someone else!

Jen Hilman has been a massage therapist since 2007 and in 2010 she began her Thai Yoga Massage training and practice. It was also in 2010 that she received her 200 Hr. Yoga Teacher Certification. Upon completion of these two trainings, she began making YouTube videos sharing her passion for massage and guiding people through simple yoga poses to help alleviate pain in their bodies. Her videos have been a great success, both here in the United States and in many countries around the world. It is the wide-spread reach of these videos that has inspired this tour. It is her intent to connect with more and more people to share the healing benefits of yoga and Thai Yoga Massage by traveling to various cities and sharing her knowledge, wisdom, and experience with whomever is able to attend her classes.
